The 2 RU Densité 2 Frame can simultaneously process 3G, HD, SD and analog video, as well as AES and analog audio. Its front-opening frame features dual hot-swappable power supplies (PSUs) and fans. Modules for the air-cooled frame are also hot swappable, and replacement modules can be configured automatically. All modules, redundant PSUs and fans are monitored to deliver status via GPI or an Ethernet port. Front panel multicolor LEDs provide status reporting, while a controller card allows card adjustments from the front panel.
The ADX-1881 is a high-quality AES de-embedder designed to extract eight 24-bit 48 kHz digital audio signals, ancillary timecode (ATC), longitudinal/linear timecode (LTC) and ancillary data from a single SMPTE ST 292 HD-SDI or SMPTE ST 259C SD-SDI signal. The ADX-1881 will output audio silence with a loss of the input signal. The card provides automatic input format detection, as well as automatic equalization. An RS-422 serial data signal output is available to provide Dolby E metadata output, or simply to output a serial RS-422 signal. Two opto-isolated GPI data output signals can be reconstructed from ANC data inserted by the embedder. By combining AMX-1881 embedder and ADX-1881 de-embedder cards, a full duplex link may be established.
